On Saturday, Zamparelli posted on her Instagram stories: "This week I won't be hosting Dancing with Nicky because I have tested positive for Covid.

"To say I'm devastated to be missing a show would be an understatement but it had to be done. My pal @lottieryan1 will be taking over and she will be amazing."
